Nice start, but when arrived at the highest point there is no track to follow. perhaps it has overgrown. Otherwise nice place to walk in summer. wear waterproof shoes.

Very light trail. Could do it with sneakers if you want to. The view from the Snøhetta was very nice, but walking a little further to the lighthouse looking thingy on the right, you have even more views to the right, which would be obscured otherwise.

Great hike with magnificent views! Can be boggy here and there, but that doesn't affect the true hiker ;)

This is an amazing hike that is full of breathtaking scenery. Go on a clear day as this type of views you do not want to miss. Hiking poles are a big plus to save your knees a bit. I will definitely do this again.

foggy. only view was near Gjendebåten. we took the ferry. on a foggy day it might be best to just start at Gjendebåten and turn around when it gets foggy

I was a bit shocked by just how much snow has already fallen at the higher elevations. Make sure to follow the red "T" markers as the trail was easily hidden by the snow and these are your only makers to show the way. AMAZING views and worth the effort and scrambling for them. I did this hike with a full hikers backpack to spend the night after the climb just past Memrubu...I DO NOT recommend hiking with such a weight. The rock scramble down was sketchy.

This was an awesome trail with amazing views and I highly recommend it. However, I have some cautions to make your journey more enjoyable. Having spent a lot of time reading about the trail, I was still surprised by the amount of time it took for me and my 17 and 24 year old daughters to complete the hike from Gjendesheim to Memerubu. We are all in decent shape and were well equipped. We all had fairly light backpacks (15-20 pounds) as we were planning to take the boat from Memerubu to Gjende and stay overnight. Based upon my research I had planned on 5-7 hours for the trip. However, even with minimal stops and maybe 15 minutes for lunch and photos at the top, it took us 8 hours even though we were rushing to make the 3:45 ferry to Gjende. We ended up missing the boat and luckily made the 4:45 ferry back to Gjendesheim just in time. To truly take the time to enjoy the views, have a relaxing lunch, take a few side trails and take photos, I think 9 hours would have been ideal. I'm glad we didn't try my original plan to hike the whole distance through to Gjende in one day! By the time we got to Memerubu we were spent. I recommend leaving early in the morning (6:30 am) if you plan to make the boat to Gjende. Also, the trail is fairly mild except for the steep ascent until you get about 1/2 way through. Then the trail has a number of fairly long, strenuous, and a bit nerve racking descents over large boulders. Another reason to build in a bit more time.

Great hike with nice views, but it is moderate easy, so we did on a day we had only couple of hours. We hike often and it took us 2h. Recommended if you are in the area and not a lot of time to do a big hike :)

sehr schöner weg, am Anfang steinig. Man kann leicht den Fluss erreichen und läuft durch ein sehr schönes Tal mit grandioser Aussicht.

Je recommande vivement cette randonnée qui nous a pris 7h. La vue sur les lacs est magnifique. Cette balade est difficile car une partie sur 2 km est plus de l’escalade que de la marche à proprement parlé (pas idéal pour ceux qui ont le vertige ou pour de jeunes enfants).

Breathtaking hike. We only went half way and would like to do the other half and then go back with the boat, but we was short on time and had no tickets for the boat (at that time there was only limited tickets), so if you plan to go with the boat back make sure to book your tickets from home. Another good tip; you can take a buss for free from the parking lot to the start of the trail. Really worth a visit. A lot of people

My wife and I accompanied by our adult son completed this hike today’. Because we are not familiar with the area we hired a guide Orjean from Borealis company. This worked well for us although the trail is well marked and fairly well travelled. There were several times his assistance was valuable. There are a few things that can make life easier for the hike: First there is no parking at the ferry dock where the hike begins so park in the lot about a half mile up the road and there is a shuttle Second— I’d strongly suggest that you take the ferry to start the hike from the far end of the lake so that the most difficult up hill and fairly exposed part of the climb is up not down hill. This hike really is best done in hiking boots and warm layered clothes and with plenty of water and something to eat along the way.. I don’t drink a lot on the trail but went though more than 2 liters . The wind was intense at the ridge lines. The day was pretty good weather with some fresh snow from the night and morning before we began but we let others go first and they stamped out the trail snow. There were some steep rocky climbs which were fairly exposed but even though exposed heights can make me uncomfortable I had no problems. This was a spectacularly beautiful hike —- probably the most spectacular I’ve even been on. Not recommended for kids but there were a couple on the hike with parents who were clearly experienced hikers and physically fit. The trail took us 9 hours to complete

Was not prepared for this to be as difficult as it was, but still doable in Nike sneakers! Took us a long time so make sure to bring a snack :) amazing views!

The ridge section was great fun but the lower loop was just a bit OK. Hardly even a pathway most of the time, some good scrambles, but not many good views at that level. We enjoyed it still!
